Liberal insiders speak out (but not really)

Liberal insider: "Where's the goddamned platform and the party position on things?"

One of my favourite games when reading media reports is to guess the identity of the ubiquitous 'Liberal insider/unnamed Liberal source/high ranking Liberal speaking on condition of anonymity/top Liberal source familiar with the campaign". I often wonder if reporters have a secret code, using the same descriptor for a particular official, because 'high ranking Liberal speaking on condition of anonymity' usually means Scott Reid.

Based on the language in this this article, I'm betting the "one Liberal" oft-quoted is Kinsella. Kicking ass indeed.
